Conventional halogen light technology has been largely exhausted as regards light intensity and lighting characteristics. Xenon lights provide significant improvement in this area. Xenon headlights make night driving easier thanks to the fact that the spectrum of xenon light is similar to daylight, thus providing a high level of safety. Xenon headlights are notable for their far range and perfect lateral spread. Further advantages include low energy consumption and the durability of the bulbs for the vehicle’s entire service life. The source of light is a so-called gas-discharge lamp. An arc-over between two electrodes in the xenon-gas atmosphere in the lamp bulbs results in an ionized gas tube through which electric current flows. This causes the gaseous mixture to glow in the form of an electric arc. A sophisticated electronics system is necessary for the operation of these bulbs in order to generate the high ignition voltage of between 18,000 and 30,000 volts, to guarantee constant operation at an output of just 35 watts or automatic re-ignition. Xenon headlights deliver a considerably more light than halogen headlights and make night driving, particularly in poor weather conditions, safer and less tiring for the driver’s eyes.
